Serious health conditions can have a significant impact on one’s life. Psychotherapy is used as a supportive individualized approach to assist clients in dealing with their diagnosis- from the first stage of discovery to the last stage of successfully managing the treatment of their illness. We help clients cope with medical conditions such as:
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Acute and Chronic Pain
- Heart Disease
- Neurological Conditions
Each person has strengths, inner resources, abilities, and skills, which they can utilize to master making their way through treatment. We believe that by using a gentle, respectful approach with individuals, we can collaborate with your physicians to find the best ways to address your concerns.
Obtaining and understanding the facts about your illness and the treatment that is being proposed by your physician is critical. In addition, managing your anxiety and worry, finding hope for the future, maintaining a positive attitude about your treatment, and finding meaning in your circumstances are all important as well. Therapy is a process that can assist you in addressing the issues that you will most likely face after your diagnosis and during treatment. Taking it one step at a time and being mindful of what you need to address can help you through each stage of treatment.
